I recently ordered Essie Huckle Buckle, a bluish purple sheer. I thought it would be more opaque from the photos, but after applying 5 coats and still not getting bottle color, I almost gave up. I love bluish purples, but this was too hard to work with. I am too cheap to throw it away, though, so I decided to make a franken with it while still keeping the pretty blue quality of it.
I mixed it half and half with Sinful Colors What’s Your Name, a dark purple with microglitter, I got a gorgeous periwinkly purple. For colors that are too sheer, try layering over a darker base. I don’t like sheer polish all that much, but that’s just me.
I really like this color and might actually wear it again!
